Try right clicking on the link and copy shortcut.
Paste in the address bar, can you get there ok?

What operating system are you running and what version of IE?

And it's only when using IE that you have this problem?
If so, did you try running the repair on IE?

There's a known issue in IE 6.0 installations in Win 98.

Do this:

Go to Start/run, and type SFC.
Choose 'Extract One File From Installation Disk'.
Type oleaut32.dll, not worrying about its location. Then, click Start.

Next to 'Restore From', type in or browse for the file’s location, which is probably in the Win98 folder of your installation CD-ROM (typically D:\Win98), or in your Windows\Options\Cabs folder, as the case may be.

Then, next to 'Save File In', enter C:\Windows\System, and click OK. System File Checker looks for the file, saves it as you requested, and then tells you that 'the file has been successfully extracted'.

Reboot, and tell us whether that solves your problem. It often does.

NOTE: before doing that, make a copy of your present version of Oleaut32.dll and save it outside your Windows\System directory for safekeeping.

Excellent! :)

Glad to hear that appears to have done the trick.
